Yes, absolutely.  This will definitely be present in the next revision of
the kit editor, which is one of the next things I am going to tackle. 
Same idea for the drum icons, as right now you can't export/reuse the
graphics without first having them in external files, which is a nuisance.

I want to eventually add this support too, with some kind of mixing
controls for soloing or muting drums in the mix.  I think both of these
features, while similar, would both be hugely useful in their own right
and not particularly redundant.

Awesome!  I love hearing this kind of feedback, and I appreciate the
continued support and enthusiasm.  Rest assured that all of the
suggestions and ideas are taken to heart -- my response on incorporating
things tends to be slow sometimes (especially recently) but that's not
due to lack of interest or desire!
